Dear friends of music and cultural exchange,
we are proud to present the BABYLON ORCHESTRA to you. We are a new group from Berlin - bringing together Syrian and European musicians, professionals and advanced amateurs to make music and learn from each other's culture.
Currently we have 21 musicians including violins, viola, cello, ney, bassoon, trumpet, horn, saxophone, piano, electric bass and three percussion players - from Syria, Iran, Greece, Palestine, Italy, Russia and Germany.
The BABYLON ORCHESTRA performed its first public concert on
December 4th 2016, 6 pm
at Silent Green, Wedding Berlin
Gerichtstraße 35, 13347 Berlin
Please help us by donating a little (from 5 € to 500 € everything is possible) to cover some of our expenses and help our voluntary work:
- concert hall rental - technician, security, wardrobe, catering, royalties (GEMA)
- audio and video recording of the concert (sound engineer, camera man, cutter, mixer)
- materials for the instruments, music stands, lights, concert clothes
- support our musicians (rehearsals from April-December have been unpaid)
- support the team (manager, musical director, PR administrator, designer, helpers)
The work that has been put into the project over the past 8 months has not been remunerated in any way - all participants and the organisation team do not profit from the project. Your donation would only help to continue the project and further donations would serve as motivation for the musicians.
Any donation over 20 € may be used to acquire a free ticket. Please contact to claim your ticket.
Thank you very much,
Mischa (musical director) and Sofia (manager)
